Question about profile photos (any why so many Russians?)

Postby Linc4Love » Wed Jul 21, 2010 5:22 pm

I'd like to know why the lion's share of women on international dating sites always seem to be Russian women (and Filipinas), to the point that you start to wonder where all the men are in these countries. Is there a reason for this?

I have nothing against Russian women, but I've guessed I succumbed to the stereotype that such women only want a green card and would hose me over the second they entered the states in some bid to destroy American men for Mother Russia. :shock: LOL As an Italian, I don't know how compatible my ethnic background would be with someone who's Russian either.

Since I'm new to these types of dating agencies, I'm also wondering how so many can have professionally done model photos. On domestic sites I always take these as a clear sign that the profile is fake (the scammer simply lifted the photo from some stock photo collection). Yet here on HappierAbroad (and other similar agencies) they are ALL professionally done. Seriously? It's hard to believe they all invest their time and energy to develop a photospread just to make a dating profile.

Answered part of my own question, apparently the men outnumber women in Russia by a factor of 12 to 1. :shock: That explains a whole lot.

They say the women outnumber the men. That may be true.

It is also very true that most of them are probably scammers. If you arent experienced at spotting someone trying to use you, you might want to avoid Russia + Ukraine.

Russian women are the most marketable women for dating sites on the basis of physical appearance. Filipinas also get high marks for physical appearance, english speaking ability, low expectations from men and high libido.
